Mathematical studies are reported which relate the effect of bogie pitching on body oscillations. The factors considered are spring stiffness, inertia, frame pitching and wheel spinning. The prevention of undue bogie pitching should be faced in early design stages. The method of attaching the body to the bogie, spring design, incorporating provisions for dampers and prototype testing for natural oscillation frequencies are all important factors in the vehicle design.
